The B!tch is back… and she's brought The Grit Doctor along for the ride.
What’s in your handbag? To-do lists scrawled on the back of receipts? An unpaid bill? Half a chocolate bar, covered in fluff? Is your handbag a metaphor for the rest of your life? Has becoming a capable, poised grown-up turned out to be more complicated than you imagined?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, and if you're tired of the crappy stuff in life grinding you down, then it's time to stop whining and Get Your Sh!t Together.
With this funny, frank, and tough-talking guide, Ruth Field and The Grit Doctor will help you:
Tackle daunting problems like a fearless superwoman
Figure out what you want from life and find the courage to Go For It
Learn how to get more sh!t done in less time
Stop feeling bad about your less-than-perfect life (because perfection's overrated anyway)
She taught you how to run; now she’s going to teach you how to run your life!

Not the book for me.
I would not. In fact, I wish I had known that her first book was called "Run, Fat Bitch, Run," because I would not have bought this book in the first place. I just think Field's message is fundamentally one I disagree with.
Actually, I kind of enjoyed her performance.
Frustration. I felt like she went over such obvious topics like "don't watch so much TV" and "obsessing over the lives of celebrities is useless."
If you are a chronically disorganized person who has very little self-discipline, this book might be helpful. If I was to sum up the book entirely, it would be "how to play Alec Baldwin's talk from Glengarry Glen Ross in your head constantly."
Coffee is for closers. We know that.
At the end of the day, I think she was trying to solve a problem that I just don't have.
I have my own slew of "absentminded professor" problems, but being obsessed with X Factor or which celebrities have botox is just not my issue.
